It's old enough to see WiFi card failures.

I take it you are using the supplied OS and drivers only from Lenovo so onwards.

When I suspect a bum WiFi card I check it out by doing a factory restore then re-test. If it still fails I pop in a new card. Actually I pop in a new card first since the time costs more than the card here. Cards here are under 50USD (much less) and while we are in there we get out the canned air.

This makes me ask. Are you keeping up with your canned air vent cleaning? Heat can age parts fast. This is not optional and many makers and sellers don't tell you to do this often.

Thank-You R. Proffitt for suggesting me the tips regarding my query.Yes i agree with you as my laptop's Wifi age is completed, now I decided to buy a new Wifi USB router & i think that will be a better option for my laptop. Yes, I clean up my laptop regularly using the laptop vacuum cleaner.
